The Cyprus Shipping Chamber expressed its disappointment that Governments delay the process of finding a solution on crew changes and repatriation.
Amid a growing discussion on the need for states to enable crew changes and protect seafarers’ rights during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cyprus Shipping Deputy Ministry (SDM) officially announced a new process to facilitate crew changes, which are now possible under certain conditions.
The Cyprus Shipping Chamber joined a global appeal to G20 leaders to enable crew changes and protect access to healthcare onshore.
The circular provides guidance to vessels flying the Cyprus flag in order to put into effect the provisions of the 2010 Manila Amendments of the STCW78 Convention which will be in force after 31 December 2016 in respect with the new introduced capacities.
